09-18-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

September 18, 2018
Brothers and sisters: As a body is one though it has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body, so also Christ.  For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one Body,  1_Cor_12:12-14,27-31a

Well, today is 9-18-18.  I always get a kick out of date numbers, and today is a fun one!  If we add together the month, day and year numbers individually, we get 9-9-9.  If we add all the nines together we get 27, which added together is 9.  If we add the 2-18s we get 36 + the 9 = 45, which added together is again 9.  Funny, we just can’t seem to get away from those 9’s today.  Except Paul’s Scripture reading does go ONE better . . . ONE!

When we think about our unity in the ONE Body of Christ and how we really do need each other to make this ONE Body the absolute best it can be, then we realize the importance of community to our Faith.  Paul goes on to speak about the different charisms, the different gifts of talent we each have that make this Body even better than any of us individually could be.

That’s the same as our community in family, our community in work, our community at school and our community as humans on this planet.  We really are all one!  And any hurt to any one or group of us hurts all the rest.

If we can get ourselves past the 9’s, then we just might realize that, instead of being the loneliest, ONE really is the BEST!
